Hi nadun.

I am struggling to understand the equation you gave.

Does the '2*3/6\2' part of your equation mean '2 times 3 divided by (6 divided by 2)' or '2 times three-sixths divided by 2' or something else?

BODMAS says inter alia that multiply and divide are of equal status and you carry out each as you meet it in order; so, 2*3=6 then divide, then divide. Adding and subtracting are the lowest level and of equal status and are carried out left to right.

Hence 2*3+5=11, whilst 2*3+5*4=6+20=26

Hence 2*3+5=11, whilst 2*3+5*4=6+20=26
